Structural shapes of chains
Articulated chains are all chains
which have a hinge made of pins
and link plates at specific inter-
vals the so-called pitch. The main
elements of these chains are link
plates and hinge sections.
The links of the majority of chains
are equipped with bushing and,
often, with a roller to improve the
articulation and reduce the wear on
the hinge. These types of chains are
called bush conveyor chains.
Articulated chains are manufactured
from different qualities of material
depending on the area of appli-
cation. This is done to cope as
optimally as possible with the strains
and environmental influences such
as corrosion, heat, dirt etc.
The multitude of application areas
for articulated chains has led to dif-
ferent structural shapes. A selection
of the most popular types of chains
are included in this catalogue. Our
main area of manufacturing is
special chains, but, of course, we
also supply all types of conveyor
chains including those with other
dimensions.

We supply the corresponding

sprockets are milled on CNC ma-
chines with standard or tailor-made
teeth systems. The shape of the tooth
can be optimised and adapted to
your individual requirements.
Generally, the sprockets are manu-
factured with milled teeth outlines.
Our heat-treated, high quality
sprockets come in a variety of
designs and materials and have the
additional option of hardened teeth.

As we only process flawless material, all raw
material is carefully checked when it enters
the factory. Along with material testing, all
prefabricated parts and finished products
are subject to on-going quality control. For
example, hardness tests are carried out on
hardened components.
Our quality management is based on
the guidelines of DIN/ISO.
So we secure the security standard
demanded by our customers.

Applications Innovation progress
the development of low-maintenance and non-
lubricated chain designs
The demand for low-maintenance and non-lubricated
chain designs is steadily increasing. Economical and
environmental view points are the decisive factors
behind the increasing demand.
Using low-maintenance and non-lubricated chains
results in enormous reduction in costs with regard to
maintenance and repair.
As no or little relubrication is required, lubrication
costs virtually disappear. However, low-maintenance
and non-lubricated chains are not suitable for all
applications. We have carried out numerous tests to
determine which applications are suitable for these
type of chains. The aim of these tests was to develop
techniques for reducing the wear and tear on the links
of conveyor chains without relubricating. We have
determined that two basic techniques are possible:
the application of a coating which reduces wear
and tear on the link
equipping the links with special sliding bearings
low-maintenace chains
We have developed a special patent sealing for use
with abrasive or corroding media. The sealing consists
of a labyrinth-sealing combined with an abradant
sealing. This type of sealing prevents dirt and moisture
from penetrating. This is necessary for the lubrication
in the chain link to remain intact over a long period
of time. The product life of the chain increases con-
siderably when the chain is relubricated less often.
chains not requiring relubrication
Depending on the operating conditions, it is some-
times possible to use chains which do not require any
relubrication. This is possible through the use of
special, application-specific sliding bearings and/or
a special coating on the chain link. In addition to
this, link sealing will also be used for some appli-
cations.
sprockets with noise dampening systems
The chains running through the sprockets create noises
that can be disturbing in a factory or plant. We have
developed a special patented noise dampening system
to reduce these noises.
The dampers cause the sprocket to be fed smoothly
into the tooth space rather than thudding against the
tooth space.
As a result, the noise is reduced to such an extent that
it can scarcely be heard amidst the other noises in
the factory. Our noise dampening system helps to
improve the general working conditions.
